Specialist/Advanced Dental Technician

Job Reference: 403-GEN1941

Employer:
Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust
Department:
Orthodontics
Location:
Musgrove Park Hospital, Taunton
Salary:
£28,050- £36,644 per annum

Musgrove Park Hospital is part of Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust. We are a district general hospital, providing care to a population of over 340,000. We also provide some specialist services for the whole of Somerset, making our catchment population around 544,000.

 

This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic Specialist/Advanced Dental Technician to join the multidisciplinary team at Musgrove Park Hospital. This post requires experience in an Orthodontic laboratory and experience of Orthognathic planning would be advantageous.

 

The laboratory provides a service to the Oral Surgery department at both Musgrove Park and Yeovil District Hospital including same day appliances, emergency repairs and a variety of Orthodontic and Maxillofacial devices.

 

The candidate must hold a degree in Dental Technology or equivalent and be registered with the GDC.

 

You’ll get to experience life in the West Country, taking advantage of easy access to some of the UK’s most desirable locations. From the beaches of North Devon and Cornwall, to the cosmopolitan centres of Bristol, Bath, and Exeter - Taunton offers you all the perks while still being less than two hours from London.

 

Nestled in the heart of Somerset Taunton has a diverse range of shopping and restaurants, and boasts sporting arenas such as the county cricket ground regularly hosting international fixtures, as well as national hotspots for cycling, surfing, and climbing such as Cheddar Gorge. Straddled between areas of outstanding natural beauty and the idyllic rolling hills of Exmoor, there’s plenty to keep you occupied alongside the abundance of music festivals and local traditions.

 

Somerset also offers some of the best schools in the country. Ranging from Public institutions such as Millfield, Queens College, Taunton School, Kings College, Wellington, and Blundell’s, to award winning state schools such as the Richard Huish College which has been ranked in the top 10 of A-level providers nationally for the last eight years, through to secondary schools ranking in the top 5% nationally, such as The Castle school in Taunton.

 

With a great educational offering, and abundance of open country side, we think there’s nowhere better. Throw in a cost of living that will see you afford a higher quality of living, including an average house price of £180,500, and significantly lower than the national average crime rate, we like to think we’re offering you the best of both worlds, professionally, and personally.
